I have one that travels in the truck especially on longer trips. Would hate to lose more than a day do to not having it with me. I was told right when i bought the boat. That especially with inboards and the soft Nebral props. Its not a matter of IF/more a Matter of WHEN. So far so good,but i am prepared, with prop and puller.

I plan on getting an Acme #1433 to replace the stock one. I was going to sell the current one but I think I will probably keep it as a spare. So there is no way to change the prop while in the water, the boat has to be on the trailer right?scott

You can go pretty far with a bent/dinged prop (I know!)
Once out of the water, it should be less than half an hour to swap a prop. If you haven't done it before, I would suggest watching the WM/Youtube video and R&R one in the comfort of your own driveway (the beers are cheaper).
While at the lake, keep the spare prop, puller, crescent wrench, dykes and 2x4 all in the same place (or easy to find)Sent by the random thoughts from the voices in my head...

You can change it on the water. You will need a block of wood to put between the bottom of the boat and the top of the prop to keep the prop shaft from rotating when you back out the prop nut. An extra pair of hands will definitely help as well as swim goggles since you will be doing all of it underwater.Al

Just for fun.... Would you theoretically be attempting this near the shore or out in the middle?"If your work speaks for itself - don't interrupt"
